I am such a sap.. I actually got a bit teary reading that Marilyn. That is amazing to see such positive changes in yourself. I am sure living in Hawai'i it is nothing to have the sunshine and great weather all the time and being so close to the ocean... but being from land locked COLD colorado..... I could not think of a better palce to recover from surgery than Hawai'i.
As far as spots not filling... I am not too worried. I have a friend or two that said they would help me make pages to fill if needed. I do not htink you can have too many journals like this.. there is always someone to give it to as a gift!
